Original report: The victim was inside her home when someone kicked open the door, beat her in the face with a frying pan and dragged her outside.

The attackers took the woman’s car keys and phone while hitting her with their fists, authorities said. As a result of an investigation, deputies took out warrants for Kyra Faison on charges of burglary, aggravated assault, battery, robbery and criminal trespass.

Neighbor Jeremy Montgomery is relieved the woman police said the sisters assaulted with a frying pan survived.

"At the end of the day, she's OK. She's still here and the other two are going to get caught. They're going to get caught so I don't understand," Montgomery said.

The attack left the victim’s body bruised, her face and lips swollen.

"It's probably over something real negative nonsense. Probably over a guy, or something like that," Montgomery said.

Authorities confirmed it was over a man.
